Bob Fosse's 'Cabaret' Restored to Original Glory




LOS ANGELES (AP) — It took a stray bit of dirt to scratch the perfection of "Cabaret," and painstaking effort to return the 1972 film to cinematic glory.
The restored "Cabaret" is opening the TCM Classic Film Festival that runs Thursday to Sunday in Los Angeles. Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey, the movie's stars, were scheduled to attend the ceremony marking the movie's 40th anniversary.
Minnelli's turn as cabaret singer Sally Bowles captured a best actress Academy Award and cemented her young stardom. She said making "Cabaret" was a joyful "secret," filmed in Munich and far away from meddling Los Angeles studio bosses.
Other TCM film festival events include a tribute to "Vertigo" star Kim Novak.
TCM said it expects to air the restored "Cabaret" later this year.


most all of the musical numbers existed within the cabaret in the oscar winning film version. the horrific and chilling 'tomorrow belongs to me' was sung in a german beer garden by a member of hitler youth. it absolutely is the most frightening song ever written for and sung in a musical.


The sun on the meadow is summery warm
The stag in the forest runs free
But gathered together to greet the storm
Tomorrow belongs to me

The branch on the linden is leafy and green
The Rhine gives its gold to the sea (Gold to the sea)
But somewhere a glory awaits unseen
Tomorrow belongs to me

The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes
The blossom embraces the bee
But soon says the whisper, arise, arise
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me

Now Fatherland, Fatherland, show us the sign
Your children have waited to see
The morning will come
When the world is mine
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me
Tomorrow belongs to me
